Pretty quiet on a Thursday night with no game at Fenway. Big warehouse style establishment with little personality. Not much to do except watch the sports televisions. I stopped in for one pint, a very good Back Bay IPA. They had about 15 taps flowing with a good variety of ales including one cask and some specialty beers like pumpkin and "bluebeery ale" (apparently their biggest seller at near 30%!). Barkeep was friendly and informative. Didn't have a chance to try the food. They had a selection of wine available but no liquor license. They also did not appear to offer bottled beer or any other brands beyond their own, but at least there are a good number of choices on tap. They also offered quite a few souvenir shirts, hats and glasses. Worth trying the beer I think but the place itself seemed uninspired to me. I'm sure it is crowded and crazy when the Sox are in town but that may not be an entirely good thing. I look forward to a return trip to sample more of the flavors offered here.

This was one stop on our Boston tour, the food was ok and the beer was great. We were there during the '13 World Series and this place was still not extremely busy (not sure what that says about them) The beer selection was above average to great. I tried 4 selections mostly from their Fall line-up. The Oktoberfest was very good (on the east coast they rim the glass w/ sugar/cinnamon) There was also a blueberry beer that I found to be very good. Service was a bit slow for them not being busy but other then that, I think the place was worth the stop if just for the large selection.
